Speed51.com’s Summer Thunder TV presented by PFC Brakes is going international this weekend. From the southern provinces of Canada to the northern states of America, we’ve got your dirt and asphalt racing fix.
The Valenti Modified Racing Series kicks off the weekend Friday evening as they head to New Hampshire’s Lee USA Speedway.
The VMRS will compete in Twin 50-Lap features around the 3/8-mile asphalt track. Friday night’s feature will also be the first Modified race in the Northeast to use cone-style restarts made famous at Bowman Gray Stadium.
Still not enough Modified racing?
Saturday night, the beautifully renovated Jukasa Motor Speedway (CAN) is hosting two open-wheel divisions— the ground-pounding Modifieds and lightning fast Supermodifieds— for the first time since it’s reopening last fall.
The Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series 100-lapper is scheduled to begin at approximately 8:20 p.m. ET, followed by the 50-lap ISMA Super Modified Series feature.
Double-up on screens and snacks to watch the battle between the Midwest and Chicagoland’s best at Grundy County Speedway (IL) at the same time.
The ARCA Midwest Touring Series will be going for 100 laps in the Wayne Carter Classic Saturday night.
Later that night, Speed51.com will be heading to the West Coast to broadcast the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series feature at Irwindale Speedway (CA).
If Monday rolls around too soon, we’ve got your pick-me-up.
The Short Track Super Series will be slinging some dirt around Big Diamond Speedway (PA) in the 50-lap “Anthracite Assault” event for a chance to win $5,000. Heat laps begin at approximately 7:15 p.m. ET Monday evening.
All of these events will be streamed live this weekend on Summer Thunder TV. If you can’t make it in person, don’t miss out on all of the fun.
